Scan Procedures and Parameters

Animals were anesthetized with isoflurane (2.5%) and monitored for depth of anesthesia

Phenotypic Assessments

The monkeys received multiple scans during behavioral training. The additional data will be part of a future release, post-publication)

Scan Procedures and Parameters

Ethics approval: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) IACUC

Animal care and housing: ISMMS is staffed with veterinarians with non-human primate expertise and a staff of skilled veterinary and husbandry technicians. Monkeys were housed in a group of 6 indoors in standard primate caging, in housing rooms containing other monkeys. The single-housed monkey was the last in her group and had failed repeated attempts to find compatible cage mates from elsewhere in the colony. All monkeys received environmental enrichment consisting of toys and novel food items.

Any applicable training: All males received cognitive tests via touch screen apparatus

Scanning preparations

Anesthesia procedures: Anesthesia procedures: ketamine, meloxicam, buprenorphine prior to intubation and placement in stereotaxic frame; isoflurane maintenance anesthesia (1-2% to effect).

Time between anesthesia and scanning: Monkeys were placed in the scanner as soon as isoflurane anesthesia was initiated and stable

Head fixation: Monkeys were placed in an MRI-compatible stereotaxic frame (Crist)

Position in scanner and procedure used: Sphinx position head first (recorded as head first supine in scanner; note that header info have been corrected to reflect anatomy). Fiducial marker placed on left side.

Contrast agent: none

During scanning

Physiological monitoring: pulse rate, SpO2, end tidal CO2, inspired/expired isoflurane, blood pressure

Additional procedures: Artificial ventilation was used to maintain end-tidal CO2 in a normocapnic range wherever possible, to avoid effects of hypercapnia on the BOLD signal. Normothermia maintained by heated air blanket
